CTRLx automation, a freely combined solution becomes possible

What happens if future oriented industrial control systems are combined with the most compact drive systems and applications on the market? The answer is: it will create a progressive world of automation. As a result, the time required for machine manufacturers to complete machine development can be greatly shortened, and practical functions can be easily integrated. For example, applications for visualization, image processing, or industrial remote access (VPN) are available through the CTRLX store. The openness of all Bosch Rexroth solutions enables unlimited generation of combination options and complete freedom of design.

CTRL x core is the core of Ctrl x automation platform. With the support of Ctrl x core, Bosch Rexroth can provide a compact control system with high performance, scalability and excellent communication capability. However, how should a control system without a driver operate? The CTRL x core can be directly connected to a highly compact Ctrl x drive system or a proven IndraDrive system via EtherCAT. Users can combine the best systems in the Bosch Rexroth product world to meet their needs.

In order to make full use of the advantages of Ctrl x core and expand its scope of functions, Ctrl x store provides a variety of applications and services. The machine control system extended in this way can be used as PLC system, gateway solution or motion control system.

Simple and efficient combination: combination of control system, driver and multiple applications

CTRL x world, or Ctrl x automation ecosystem, provides a comprehensive and practical application library for various automation tasks. Nowadays, mechanical engineering not only means to simply manufacture a machine, but also means to equip the machine with appropriate software and intelligence, and complete the development in the shortest possible time. The interaction between Ctrl x core and Bosch Rexroth’s applications or third-party applications will bring transparency, mobility and innovation to the process of machine manufacturers.

For example, you can select a webiq HMI application using smart HMI in the CTRLx store. The solution is a fully web-based industrial HMI / SCADA toolbox with functions similar to content management systems. With it, developers can efficiently design and develop Web-based HMI, industrial web applications and dashboard applications – which are not only intuitive, but also run on all relevant technology platforms or mobile devices. Webiq adopts a new design method, and the ready-made web controls are very attractive, so it stands out from many classic HMI designs. HMI solutions can be used without any programming knowledge.

In addition to visualization applications, Ctrlx automation provides a range of image processing and machine vision applications – both of which play a key role in the field of automation. Taking the application program of automatic process control based on industrial camera system as an example. HD vision systems, a partner of Bosch Rexroth, supports automation through vision guided target positioning, tracking and acquisition and QR code scanning technology. While providing these functions, the company also uses the standard array camera interface as a visual suite in the automation platform ecosystem.

Since Ctrl x core can be used not only as a machine control system, but also as a security and intelligent gateway solution, current and future network requirements can be taken into account when building the industrial Internet of things. The control system adopts open design and has many interfaces, so it is also suitable for adding Internet of things interfaces and functions to machines and systems in existing facilities. With the help of Bosch Rexroth’s Internet of things solution and the application of third-party suppliers, the functions of Ctrl x core control solution can be adjusted as needed. In ctrlx world, iXon can provide end-to-end industrial Internet of things solutions covering hardware to cloud for all remote maintenance requirements, so that machine manufacturers can easily integrate industrial Internet of things into their automation solutions.

Always at the forefront

Because the hardware is easy to combine and can interact with third-party software, Bosch Rexroth can provide modular and scalable solutions for different requirements, whether for network, rapid engineering design or typical mechanical engineering applications. If the machine manufacturer needs to improve the performance, speed and agility of the machine, they can adjust the automation solution at any time and customize it according to specific needs. Machine manufacturers can cope with increasingly complex connectivity and digitization tasks with the help of applications without building their own pool of expertise or additional resource investment.

As one of the world’s leading transmission and control technology suppliers, Bosch Rexroth is committed to providing efficient, powerful and safe intelligent motion solutions for all kinds of machinery and system equipment. The company has rich project experience in the fields of walking machinery application, mechanical application and engineering and factory automation, and creates a perfect application environment for the realization of interconnected industry with its intelligent components, customized solutions and services. At the same time, Bosch Rexroth also provides customers with various hydraulic, electronic transmission and control, gear, linear transmission and assembly technologies, software and Internet of things interfaces. The company operates in more than 80 countries and regions around the world, has more than 29600 professional employees, and has global sales of nearly 5.2 billion euros in 2020.
